How Jackie O Spends April Fool's Day

9:15am: Stroll into work. Attempt to slip into my desk without the VP (who arrives @ 6:45am & sits within 4 yards of me) noticing.

9:16am: Clunky bracelet makes full contact with my desk announcing my "late" yet regularly-scheduled arrival.

9:17am: Mumble something about traffic.

9:18am - 9:30am: Coffee break.

9:31am - 9:34am: Work.

9:35am: Grow bored with work.

9:35am - 10:15am: Craft an email 'from' my company's HR department announcing our new cost-cutting initiative by limiting restroom usage to once every four hours, along w/ the new BYOR policy. (R=roll)

10:15am - 10:30am: Amused with myself while thinking of another prank.

10:33am: Receive super-secret text letting me know there is poison in my coffee, and further instructions to follow.

10:35am - 11:00am: Experience pranker's block

11:00am - 3:00pm: Work. Again.

3:05pm: Colleague steals my computer out of the restroom. (No, my office is not in the restroom, but if it were, that would be so much cooler of a story.)

3:05pm - 3:07pm: Wonder who the heck would want my computer in a place filled with computers.

3:08pm: Get excited thinking no computer = no work.

3:09pm: Greeted in the hall by giggling colleague with computer in-hand.

3:10pm - Now: Friggin' workin.

Sheesh. What a disappointment. April Fool's used to be so much cooler. So did foiling.
